A Bit Different
They told me it was impossible
that in all probablity I would fail
so I worked as hard as possible
to one day boast about my tale
Of how I defeated the chains that held me
of how I was stronger then they thought
of how I became the person I wanted to be
Of how I did all that I sought
It would be magnificent
It would be significant
I would be someone important
when I showed them I was gorgeous.
where are these things I was to do?
The things that would show them that I grew?
The things I had dreamed about for years?
The things that continually brought me tears?
Not a hint or glimpse of these tales I told
Perhaps I really was much to bold
to not shrink at the ones who laughed
Perhaps I really am just draft
Perhaps I really will never succeed
Perhaps I'll never be the person
that I really want to be
Or am I?
Perhaps I didn't make the tales true
or even hold up to all my silly rules
but I did try, oh did I try
I tried and tried and tried again
I never gave up, not even w
watching all my time go past
is it to early? to give up and leave
is it to late? to have something else up my sleeve
I don't know where I'm heading
or what's coming to me.
Should I be worried?
as everything falls apart
or perhaps falls in place
Should I hurry?
or just ran away
or run towards a distant dream
Should I give up?
on something that will never happen
on something that has happened
Should I just stop?
Or should I be someone who,
Perhaps that's all there is to it.
but it just seems a bit...
too easy to ignore
maybe I'll accept it later
but maybe I'll never
find my self cooler.
It's something I dread
but makes me excited enough that I can't go to bed
who will I become?
but then, I am already someone now
but then, I am not the person from before
Who will I be?
What will I see?
Dead Man's SwitchIn control, then not -
Sudden loss of grip.
Headlong to where?
Details lost, smudged, streaked.
Careening; no system of
No dead man's switch,
On a fast track -
With or without a god?
